David & Nadia Plat'bos 2020 (75cl)
Chenin blanc
South Africa

Average critic rating: 96

Tim Atkin : 98    Platter's : 96    James Suckling : 95     Jancis Robinson : 17+    

A grape variety that I really like and which, when vinified by the best South African producers, is truly extraordinary; Tension, acidity, salinity: it makes you salivate and you have only one desire: to come back and serve yourself...

Pear, stone fruits, citrus fruits, fennel, spices enrich the salinity, the acidity and this fresh and precise wine. 

 

To be enjoyed with a grilled sea bass or shellfish.
 

 

Tim Atkin : 98/100

David and Nadia Sadie are now part of an elite group of Chenin Blanc producers from South Africa, who consistently produce world-class wines. This is my favorite of their trio of single vineyard wines in 2019.
This wine comes from a 3.9 hectare site on granite soils on the Paardeberg.
Tight, tense and floral, with a relatively low alcohol content, mouth-watering freshness, focus and acidity, fennel and spice, apple and gunflint notes and a lingering finish. A Grand Cru from the Cape.
2021-32

Platter's : 96/100

Harvested the earliest among the chenins (12% alcohol), the 2020 is lighter, less spicy than the previous one but no less exciting. Lavender and subtle marmalade, then pear and stone fruit. Broad but taut, textured and structured by winemaking, which adds zest to the baked apple at the end.

James Suckling : 95/100

A more saline character on the nose with aromas of oyster shells, lime zest, white pears, juniper berries and dried jasmine. Medium bodied with good acidity. Lively and vibrant. Tight and mineral finish. Best after 2022.

James Suckling – December 13, 2021

 

Jancis Robinson: 17+/20

Very intense mineral nose, with extracts and flavors of green fruits, but no lack of maturity. A very marked acidity on the very long citrus finish. This wine should last a long time. A suggestion of lamb's lettuce on the finish. You can definitely enjoy it now, but ideally I'd wait until next year. Big, pulsating life for this wine that has something of a Grosses Gewächs in terms of structure: a confident blend of body, acidity and a bone-dry finish.
